Organic Sheets from Magnolia Organics
Thinking about going green? The switch from a conventional lifestyle to a more eco- conscious life will definitely take time and won’t happen all at once. As with any big change, baby steps are the key. One great tip to get the green ball moving is to pick one room of your home to start greening first, and then move on to the other rooms of your house.
Let’s say you want to start the green-over in your bedroom. Your bedroom is a personal space and it’s important to make it a healthy environment while you are sleeping and lounging around. One easy and great way to start greening your bed room is to switch from conventional to organic cotton sheets.
Most conventional bedding is created with fibres made from synthetic cotton or different kinds of man-made blends. This cotton has been harvested and treated with extensive use of chemicals making your sheets unhealthy for you to breathe, especially while you are sleeping. Luckily, there’s lots of different organic and natural bedding to choose from. We found we really enjoy from Magnolia Organics.
The mission for Magnolia Organics is to, “produce clean and sustainable home products with a focus on quality and design”. To achieve this they only use fair labour during the entire production process, staying on top of new eco- conscious practices while also keeping up with what the consumer is looking for in a green product. With great products, conscious production, eco-friendly practices, fair treatment of employees, and lots of products to choose from, as a consumer, you’ll know that by using Magnolia Organics products you are having a significant impact on global environment and health.
On paper Magnolia Organics is a fantastic company, but can their organic sheets measure up?
They sent us a bedding package from their basic collect which fit a double bed. On the website you have a choice from six colours. Some are plain white while other sets are hot, hot pink. We decided to go with a bright ‘Lemon Grass’ yellow. Our package came folded up tight in an organic cotton reusable bag. Inside were a fitted sheet, top sheet and two pillow cases. We were a little disappointed about the color. The website shows very vibrant and color saturated sheets. But it turned out that the lemon grass yellow color was more grassy then yellow. Once they were actually fitted on the bed, the color looked a lot better.
For comfort they felt fantastic! At a 200 thread count they felt incredible- very light feeling. They make for perfect summer sheets since they breathe and are light weight. It was lovely to wake up cool in the morning without having to untangle your body from hot sheets. Plus you can sleep easier knowing that your organic sheets have been treated through an eco- friendly dyeing process. You’re not breathing in any toxins from dye or synthetics.
Organic sheets are no fuss and will prove to you that making green changes to your home doesn’t require a lot of effort. Magnolia Organics is a great company to use when you’re beginning your green make over for your bedroom. By using Magnolia Organics you’re not only getting a great product but you are also supporting a globally conscious company. We’re giving Magnolia Organics a big Naturally Savvy Approval.
